• The Professor

    remember the raw after this where they basically filmed it in a studio?

    • ProjectBlue

      Wouldn’t mind it becoming a tradition, or if they’re afraid of it not being able to sustain ratings, then use that as the christmas ratings death episode every year

    • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

      I loved it, since I didn’t watch the Rumble the night before and got to see it in its entirety. Cena-Rollins-Brock too!

  • WWF1987

    Sixers won again. 6.5 GB of the 8th seed.

  • WWF1987

    Time stamp?

    • It’s about 10:15 on the east coast.

    • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

      Can’t tell, but Sin Cara just slid in.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ah, good. Now everything is good.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      I’ll never understand this place.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Is tattooed Sin Cara the second or first one?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Second.

      • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

        I like when they had two Sin Caras before that, and then this one eventually got the character. Can’t recall his name before.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Sigh.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    The worst part to me is just how unceremoniously Bryan gets dumped out. I don’t think anyone expected it to happen so suddenly. The “Shattered Dreams” graphic is also cruely timed.

    • Converge241

      I still think Bryan Reigns at end was way to go. Sure crowd will hate Reigns BUT THEY DID ANYWAY. Plus they did a match between the two of them anyway as well at Fastlane. My god at least you would have had alectric dramatic ending battle as opposed to show and kane (and rusev)

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Pizza Guy is too good. Kings got fleeced

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Hawks REFUSE TO GO GENTLY

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Atlanta with some real NBA 2K AI catchup bullshit. Double clutch 3 off the backboard?

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    PIZZA GUY AGAIN! This finish is BONKERD

  • I go to all the trouble of posting a thread here and no one is making any comments. Or is Disqus bollocksed again?

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I just can’t think of anything to post right now.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      People needing a night thread is another thing I’ll never understand.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Day people are skeevy and I don’t want my comments intermingling with theirs

      • I’ve never really understood why we split it up. Does disqus not handle the comments well? I mean, as well as disqus does anything?

        • Once it gets above a certain number, of posts, Disqus starts to act up, yeah. That was the original reasoning.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            I just think it’s become an excuse for some people to be weird and skeevy, as if the night thread title gives them license to wig out. I mean, if you’re gonna be an oddball just do it, don’t sit around panting for a night thread to unleash your lunacy.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Those people are lame-o.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            TBF, the main culprit seems to have vanished.

          • It’s not as skeevy as it used to be. It’s true that no one ever has any fun in them, but it’s mostly just clinical depression.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            I understand depression, but I’m just as miserable in daylight as I am at night.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Not anymore.

          • Happy go lucky night guys?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I dunno. I am more upbeat so I just assumed the rest of the joint had become more upbeat by proxy.

          • I dunno. It just seems like it’s always depressed talk, or serious discussions. No one is ever talking about what AMC theatres is doing to appeal to millennials, or gags of any kind.

            Just not a lot of laughs. Which is fine. I guess.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I never see any of that. Not during the late night portion of the evening.

          • Serious discussions?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Nah, I got conversations about space, random war time battles, sports….Nothing really serious or heavy.

          • That’s exactly what I’m talking about when I say serious discussions. You don’t get that stuff dayside. Just gags. It’s the nature of what we’re all doing during that time frame. In the day thread we’re all ducking in and out while we work so there’s no time nor desire for that stuff. It’s just silliness to pass the time.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I suppose. I dunno. I just come here to say shit.

          • I’m not even trying to disparage, just notice the difference. Day threads are fun, night threads are serious.

  • J. Frizz

    Just occurred to me that this weekend’s UK tournament will be a really good indicator of how much Vince & Kevin Dunn fucking ruin Michael Cole on a weekly basis.

    • Converge241

      Beast in the east he was left alone and better

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    MCU rewatch is done! Burned out but totally awesome. If you’re into this sort of thing my MCU Rankings:

    1. Captain America Civil War.
    2. Captain America The Winter Soldier.
    3. The Avengers.
    4. Captain America The First Avenger.
    5. Iron Man Three.
    6. Iron Man.
    7. Guardians of the Galaxy.
    8. Thor.
    9. The Avengers Age of Ultron.
    10. Iron Man 2.
    11. Ant-Man.
    12. Thor The Dark World.
    13. Incredible Hulk.

    Given how much I enjoyed Ant-Man it is shocking to see it so low. Speaks to the quality above it.

    • Iron Man 3?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Can’t explain it. I love Iron Man Three to death.

    • WWF1987

      Deadpool?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Not MCU

    • The Professor

      too high on IM 3

      too low on antman

      where is dr strange?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Haven’t seen Strange yet. I really liked Ant-Man! Thor 2 and Hulk are the only meh’s. Ant-Man is good but to me it’s just good.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I think Strange is going to come in around Ant-Man for you.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            It’s got Cumberbatch in it so I’m already horribly biased towards it lol. I know zero about the strange character so I’m very interested in seeing the movie.

    • Harry Hood

      Question: were you a big Captain America guy before, or are the movies just that good? Every time I debate watching one I decide against it because Ive never really been into his comic books.

      • I am absolutely not a Marvel guy, but the Cap movies are fantastic and should be watched.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Never was a Cap guy. Hated the first movie the first time I saw it. Avengers 1 sorta started to turn the tide, Cap 2 sealed it. Love the character. Went back to rewatch the first one and it worked so much better now that I loved the character. Cap 2 and Cap 3 are undeniably great and epic. 1 is great if you are an Evans Cap mark.

        • The Professor

          I have probably seen the first avenger the most of any mcu movie

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            Avengers, Cap 2, Civil War for me. My top 3, not surprisingly.

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          Yeah I approached Cap 1 like “Ugh I guess I gotta watch this boy scout fuck to get to Avengers” but after Winter Soldier he became my favorite.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I was never a Cap guy in the comics but the Cap movies are TREMENDOUS

    • I’m not really into that sort of thing.

      Plus, I thought that you were really high on Hulk a couple of days ago?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      C’mon…Hulk is better than Thor 2. That’s just mean…

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Lol, I didn’t hate Hulk this go around. I thought it was decent all things considered. I really enjoy Hemsworth as Thor and obviously Loki so that gave Thor 2 an edge.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Maybe I have to watch it again. I just remember utterly hating it.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Id put it over Hulk as well. The portal finish is fun and creative while Hulk is just wholly forgettable

    • Converge241

      1. Winter Soldier
      2. Guardians
      3. Avengers
      4. Civil War
      5. Iron Man 3
      6. Avengers Ultron
      7. Doctor Strange
      8. Iron Man
      9. Ant Man
      10. Thor 2
      11. Iron Man 2
      12. Thor
      13. Incredible Hulk
      14. Captain America

      For me

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I used to think she was super cute.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        She got city miles on her quick. Has to be surgery or drugs

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I blame her time with NBC.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        That’s because at one point she was. She looks like someone wearing a Michelle Beadle mask now.

      • Mikey

        She aged 15 years in a 5 year span.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Working with Billy Bush can do that to a lady.

    Who is this extant guy who posted the thread?

  • Jackson Smith

    Rumble half over, DB splitting YES! Kicks between Rusev and Bray and everyone’s happy…

  • Jackson Smith

    …..annnnnnnnnd pushed off the apron like a total moron. For some reason the fans aren’t happy with a 10-minute appearance like some midcard geek, weird.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      But they were just cheering for Bray. What’s the issue?

    • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

      That’s the way I used to eliminate everyone in WCW Revenge/Wrestlemania 2000.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Yep. Knock them out onto the apron and knock them off.

      • Converge241

        Word!!

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Get them on the apron and then ram their head into the post…And that’s how Hawk Hana becomes the best wrestler in WCW.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Proto New Day Kofi!

  • The Silver Fox
    • The Professor

      that girl is cute

    • Pretty great.

      They play in their pj’s?

    • RudoWakening

      NORWAY!!!

  • The Professor

    If Daniel Bryan wasn’t going to win, it should have been a big screwjob ending like HHH coming in taking him out

  • Jackson Smith

    Giant boos, DB chants….this crowd is infuriated with HALF THE RUMBLE LEFT TO GO, haha. I mean, not only did they kick the fans in the nuts twice, but they didn’t even do it at the end!

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Mandy Leon is a rosebud!

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I love her. She’s incredibly sweet in person.

      • Mikey

        She’s super hot too.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Which one is this now?

  • The Professor

    One very underrated thing of cap1 is how they made (through CGI) chris evans as a 5’4 100lb weakling for 30 minutes

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Its darn good considering the high level of difficulty

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Agree. That CGI work was fantastic. Those scenes with skinny Cap make the character. Jumping on the grenade is THE Cap scene.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Hayward would look great as a Celtic next season.

  • Jackson Smith

    LOL, not that Adam Rose’s party clowns ever worked on the main stage, but they are INCREDIBLY out of place now with the fans pissed as fuck. Dancing around like assholes with giant grins on their faces as boos ring out, wonderful.

    • The Professor

      was strowman in the group at the rumble?

      • Jackson Smith

        No

  • Jackson Smith

    Reigns at #19 and is it ever day and night compared to his endmatch sequence with Batista from last year.

  • Jackson Smith

    Every fucking time the horn goes off they just get shit on. Face, heel, whoever.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Except for Big Show. Dude comes out to near silence.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Ha, Miz pulling rank. I’m just completely over Sandow, especially after seeing him on TNA last night. Yikes.

    • HartKiller_09

      He’s pretty much the epitome of TNA pushing someone because the internet thought he was misused in WWE.

  • Jackson Smith

    OTTO WANZ MAGGLE

    But this time with Rusev, KO wasn’t here yet

  • Jackson Smith

    Sandow doesn’t turn and the crowd only gets madder.

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    Looked like Rusev had to shove Roman to his corner before Swagger got there.

  • Marvklar – #13

    LOL Wheel contestant couldnt get it with two letters left and squanders a trip to Central America

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      That could have been on purpose. That place is sketch.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Lol but $6000 to your round total on top of the money earned should ease the pain

    • Obi1Jabroni

      Was it the guy who messed up guessing on “MY H_IRY _UNT” ?

  • Mikey

    How are you in the lottery every year and your starting Anthony Tolliver and Garrett Temple?

    Kings done fucked up a lot

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      The front office is NBA’s TNA

      • Mikey

        They hit on Boogie and that’s about all I can think of that they were right on. Thomas Robinson turned into an NBA Journeyman haflway into his rookie year and Ben McLemore is horrible.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Pizza Guy as well, who had 30 tonight for the 3-seed in the East.

          • Mikey

            Ah yeah but they let him walk. The Suns were damn dumb letting him go as well.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Pizza guy?

          • Mikey

            Isiah Thomas. I knew who he was talking about but I don’t get the nickname

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            He got Pizza Guy in Sac for his popular local ads for the Pizza Guys chain

            https://youtu.be/nUzOMMbsZ7I

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      They are not a well run organization.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    I haven’t rewatched the 2015 Rumble since it happened but I feel totally comfortable calling it one of the worst matches I have seen in years. I was just saying how I don’t go negative stars but that one deserves it. Not even because of the result. The booking of the match top to bottom was just pisspoor and it stands as a towering achievement in completing failing as a match.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      JAMIE NOBLE, BOY

    • Mikey

      The ending was just really sad. Kane and Big Show duping guys left and right showed how badly WWE understood its audience.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I still think 99 was worse, but 2015 is the clear #2. 2014 wasn’t much better.

      • Roronoa FunkDoc

        I thought 2014 was great until the final third of the match killed it dead.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I think it would have been better received if Batista was a surprise entrant. Still, they should have just had Bryan win the damn thing, seeing as how he got the title at Mania anyway.

    • LScisco

      Arguably the most tone deaf booking in company history since KOTR 95

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        KOTR wasn’t badly booked really, and least not in the same sense that RR15 was. The problem with KOTR was that the best match was like *1/2.

  • Jackson Smith

    Titus fucks up setting the fuckup record and THAT, not anything else, THAT is what Vince was concerned over, lol.

  • Mikey

    @Kenny_Reigns:disqus Are you watching the Cavs game?

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    2014/15 (I’m using Duck time, so April ’14-WrestleMania 31) is one of the most soul-crushingly miserable years in WWE history.

    • Mikey

      I was just typing this lol. I was going to say about June because the Shield and Evolution was still a fun feud.

      • Roronoa FunkDoc

        Ah yeah, true. The month of April was the most enthusiastic I’d been about WWE in about a decade but after Daniel Bryan’s neck injury it just unraveled.

        • Mikey

          It really did. I view a lot of that time period with contempt. I don’t think I’ll view any part of that time period with nostalgia.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I’d say 15-16 was even worse.

      • Mikey

        Work rate was pretty damn good though.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Booking was absolute shit though.

          • Mikey

            It wasn’t very good. Reigns actually stayed away from the main event for a lot of the year but Rollins being a stooge was terrible

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          Plus there were a lot of fun acts here and there. Still not very good, but 2014 was just agony. Duck described the year as oppressively stagnant, and that’s the perfect way to put it.

          • Mikey

            Yeah, I can’t add much more lol. It’s kinda making me sad. Especially since the time right after Mania 30 seemed to awesome. Had an awesome champion and an awesome, bad ass top stable in the Shield.

          • Roronoa FunkDoc

            Exactly, it was just sad. Like they were just botching everybody and by early 2015 there was just nothing to look forward to. Everybody was damaged goods. It was depressingly empty.

          • Curtis Williams

            At least 2014 had Rollins/Ambrose and Brock was still awesome. 2015 was the pits.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Never mind the Owens feud (that pissed me off something fierce, but Owens obviously turned out fine), but the payoff to the U.S. Title Open Challenge being Del Rio (who wouldn’t even be in the company a year later) winning the title was BULLSHIT. Add in the worst world title reign I can remember in recent memory, Sheamus cashing in on Roman, and the horrible build to a really piss poor Mania… it was a pretty shitty year.

          • Curtis Williams

            I’m definitely in the minority when I say I could of lived with those things if it wasn’t so BORING.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            The Sheamus cash in broke me as a WWE fan. And it’s not like I like Roman or dislike Sheamus, but it was at that point I knew they just aren’t ever going to get their heads out of their asses.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Oof, the guy who couldn’t get MAJESTIC VOLCANIC _EA_S loses out on going to the bonus round by $350

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Im a savant. Went 15/15 on a sample contestant exam

  • Jackson Smith

    “The Big Show, the mood just changed!”

    Naaaah, still angry as fuck. WE WANT REFUNDS, lol

  • Jackson Smith

    Ziggler fills out the field at #30 and the crowd begging anybody but Reigns to win.

  • Jackson Smith

    Another chant for Ziggler. The wheezy laughing guy warming up his voice backstage…

    • Mikey

      Nope! Went from single handedly taking down Team Authority to being a dope that couldn’t cut the mustard against the real stars like Corporate Kane,

  • Jackson Smith

    Time for Kane and Big Show’s garbagemen routine!

    Bye bye, Ziggler. So much for your 45 minutes, Bray.

  • Mikey

    Rumble 2015 kinda feels like back in school when you’re taking a test and you don’t know a few answers in a row and then therefore you fuck up the rest of the test. Once the reaction to Bryan getting eliminated happened, it seemed like no one was working hard because they knew it was going to end badly no matter what.

    • Yeehaw

      I think that applies more to 2014. 15 was just pure HATRED.

      • Mikey

        I was at the 2014 Rumble and it was almost fun doing all the booing. It was kinda fun shitting on the Orton-Cena match too.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          THIS IS AWFUL!

          • Mikey

            Orton was getting noticeably angry. The show got worse and worse. Bray and Bryan was at least a good match and Lesnar smashing Big Show with a chair over and over again was fun

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Orton just does not know how to deal with hostile crowds, it’s one thing that Cena really excels at. But they should have known better than to even book that match.

      • Brian_Bayless

        2015 Rumble was a disaster all around. The body of the match was dogshit too

  • Jackson Smith

    And Ambrose tossed like garbage to leave Reigns alone. Philadelphia no likey.

    BULLSHIT chant

    • The Professor

      well we still have rusev

      • Jackson Smith

        Yes! Maybe Rusev can save the day!

    • Marvklar – #13

      MARV-KLAR! MARV-KLAR!

      • The Professor

        yeah, fuck kane

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      So I guess the story was supposed to be Big Show and Kane were unstoppable until Reigns stopped them. But really it came off as Kane and Big Show did all the hard work, turned on each other and Reigns capitalized like the hero babyface that he is.

      • Jackson Smith

        Ginormous boos as Roman Is Booked Strong by eliminating Kane and Show at once, hahaha

        • The Professor

          I like the initials for “Roman is booked strong” is ribs

    • Yeehaw

      The last ten minutes of that match has to be in the bottom five worst booking EVER.

    • Converge241

      The crowd the year before was neck and neck. Just some aspects were different. Just my opinion I know some feel strongly one was more vociferious than the other but watch em back to back sometime

  • Curtis Williams

    The Cavs are pushing our shit in

  • Jackson Smith

    Another refunds chant as The Superdupermegapowers of Kane and Big Show turn on each other.

  • Jackson Smith

    Crowd suddenly realizes Rusev is still alive, chants for him.

    Rock run-in time, as the fans love it…until they realize what’s going on, LOL

  • Curtis Williams

    2015 Rumble was half fun and half infuriating as fuck. Fun for the booing and the crowd turning on the company but infuriating for obvious reasons

  • Jackson Smith

    Rusev didn’t even get a comeback spot, thought he did. Oh well, lol.

    We indeed HAVE witnessed the advent of Roman Reigns, Cole.

  • Jackson Smith

    Rock hadn’t been booed like this since the spring of 1997.

    • Converge241

      Rocks wtf facials are just top notch

      • Kenny_Reigns

        They made the ending totally worth it!

        Also great was his promo at the end where he breaks character and gets pissed at some people behind the camera. You could tell he was totally shaken by the night.

    • RudoWakening

      It’s like we said when it happened, if YOU GET THE FUCKING ROCK BOOED, you’re a lost cause.

  • Jackson Smith

    Hunter and Steph walk to the entryway to register their displeasure with the incredibly handsome, well coiffed, jacked up winner and potential poster boy for their business.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      This has always been one of the biggest issues with Reigns, the narrative that he’s somehow not what the Authority wants when he’s clearly the poster boy of everything they’re looking for.

      Reigns would have been so much more successful if they’d stunned everyone and just went with him in 2014 as the Rumble winner in a last-minute shock over Batista. Or just pull a Diesel/Bob Backlund and hotshot the belt to him with no warning. Much like with Lex Luger, the longer they drew out the chase and eventual coronation, the less likely it was to ever work.

      • Jackson Smith

        “He’s so photogenic and potentially business expanding in his appeal to the female viewer…I HATE THAT SO MUCH-AH!”

      • Converge241

        Reigns winning the rumble over Batista and then *losing* to orton at 30 may have been a better path. Batista fights..Del Rio? Still do Bryan-HHH maybe even as last match. Still can do Taker – Lesnar, Wyatt-Cena etc. batista was promised the main event but hey like they never broke a promise before.

        If reigns lost then slowly built to another chance might have been different. MIGHT

    • Kenny_Reigns

      If they would have just gone the natural direction of making Reigns the hand picked champion of the Authority, they would be printing money hand over fist.

  • Curtis Williams

    Now that WWE knows how to spin fan hijackings now, the response to 2014 and 2015 Rumbles will never happen again. Hope y’all enjoyed them.

    • Mikey

      It was a smart move inserting Jericho into the 2016 Rumble to direct the match

      • Curtis Williams

        And then they had Roman win again after sitting out half of the match

        • Mikey

          Yeah, I mean, that was terrible. But it wasn’t as big of a clusterfuck as 2015.

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          HHH won

          • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

            Roman wasn’t even the last guy left

    • Yeehaw

      To be fair, it’s going to be hard to book worse Rumbles from here on out.

      • Curtis Williams

        Let’s see how this year goes okay?

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I think everyone would rather have had a good Rumble than the entertainment of the crowd shitting on it.

    • RudoWakening

      The only way fan hijackings can work now is if as soon as the show goes live everyone leaves.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Or not buy tickets in the first place.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Er’rybody should just buy tickets and then give them to skeevy people who just want somewhere warm to spend an evening yelling at shit.

  • Reading comments over at iO9 where some schmoe who calls himself an Angrier Geek arguing with EVERYONE ELSE ON THE BOARD about how he hates the movie Se7en and how the script is lazy and inconsistent makes me thankful that I am not that sad, pathetic bastard.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I wouldn’t argue about it, but I agree with him. I actually fell asleep in the theater watching it, only time that’s ever happened.

  • cabspaintedyellow

    This Night Thread going up late is like when NBC went to Conan with the compromise that Leno could do a brief 11:30 show and then the Tonight Show could start at midnight, to which Conan responded that it was a stupid idea because at midnight, it’s no longer The TONIGHT Show.

    • Curtis Williams

      Normally, I’d complain that Conan is being stupid for taking it too literal, but in this instance he’s right

  • Jackson Smith

    Ah, both those Rumbles…still as delightful as I remember, still for all the wrong reasons.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Starting the Always Sunny premiere, woot!

    • Mikey

      I was near tears at the end of this week’s episode. The premiere was great too

  • Curtis Williams

    Down 19 to the Cavs and LeBron is starting to heat up…..WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Holy shit, just five minutes in, im dying laughing

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      It’s a fantastic episode.

    • RudoWakening

      It’s an all-timer. Just fucking godly.

  • Mikey

    What are some Rumble winners that you would switch?

    I’d go DiBiase instead of Big John Studd in 89 to start it off.

    • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

      I guess; Dibiase could’ve used that win in 89 after thoroughly losing to the Megapowers in ’88.

    • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

      Bryan for Reigns if they weren’t afraid of Lesnar killing him

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        In retrospect, it was probably the right move for a guy just coming back from injury. But to then put him in that ladder match….

        • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

          Yep but I could see him going for an epic with Lesnar and the finish would have been him getting curbstomped. Probably for the better

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Bryan shouldn’t have even been in that match if he wasn’t winning. Bring him back the next night or something.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            Oh, definitely.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Roman in 2014, Anybody but Roman in 2015

    • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

      Savage over Yoko and Jericho over Sheamus are two more

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      ANYONE else in 1999.

      • Mikey

        It had to be either Austin or McMahon.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Austin would have been fine (though I can see why they wouldn’t want the same guy winning 3 years in a row) but Vince shouldn’t have even been in the match, much less going coast to coast, it would have been different if he was #30 or something.

          • Dwayne

            He wasn’t in the match for most of it. He was hanging out at the announcers table.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            That’s kind of my point.

            Not sure if it was possible, but debuting Big Show and having him win would have been a lot better. Or Shamrock or some surrogate for Vince, but not Vince himself.

          • Dwayne

            I get you. That was a wacky Rumble anyway but Russo and Ferrara was booking so…

      • Dwayne

        Gangrel?

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          He’s at least a wrestler.

    • Dwayne

      I feel you but winning the Rumble didn’t have much meaning yet. I would have had Bret win straight up in 94

      • Mikey

        Yeah thats true. I was just watching that recently and I always knew Dibiase as a star and never new Studd as anything either than a poor man’s Andre

    • Yeehaw

      10 year old Yeehaw would say 1997. I was infuriated by that shit.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Big John Studd’s return was a major flop.

      I’d even have Hogan win and do the spot where he accidentally tosses Savage with Bad News as the final two eliminations.

    • The Professor

      warrior over hogan

  • Yeehaw

    It is scary accurate how some episodes of How I Met Your Mother were. I’m experiencing “woo girls” as we speak.. no complaints though.

        • HartKiller_09

          Oh. I’ve just gotten used to reading a random celebrity name brought up and them being dead.

          Re-watched the Informant a couple of weeks ago, he was good in that.

    What is it with Always Sunny CRUSHING musical episodes?

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I like how when It’s Always Sunny moved to a new network and night I was like, “Welp, never gonna see you again.” and I never did. Not even when those episodes made it to Netflix.

    • Mikey

      Lol, it just moved to a second FX station.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        And a new day. Yeah, that shit’s done.

  • RudoWakening
  • Mikey

    The women of Cleveland are wild for Jason Kipnis and Kevin Love. I feel that Korver will probably join those two.

    • Dwayne

      Cleveland likes the pretty white boys

      • Mikey

        LeBron isn’t exactly Denzel

        • Dwayne

          Nope. Chicks liked Kobe

          • Mikey

            If we are talking Cleveland black athletes, I have cousins and girls at work that are gaga for Tristan Thompson.

          • Dwayne

            I heard he was the latest NBA player fucking Khloe Kardashian

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            God, they give you a choice too and he went with her. Poor idiot. Kylie is the money melon.

          • Curtis Williams

            Khloe could get the pipe. Plus it’s not going to last anyways, no big deal.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Eh, I feel like my pipe wouldn’t be big enough. Like a hot dog in a hallway, I imagine.

          • Curtis Williams

            We’re talking about Khloe, not Kim.

          • Mikey

            Yeah, she flies out here and goes to games. I’ve been to two games this year and she was at one of them. She lost a lot of weight.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Damn good looking white Cleveland athletes snapping up all the women!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Remember when they ran Futurama reruns on Adult Swim and Comedy Central and people were like “Oh mah gerd! They need to make new ones!!!!!!!111!!!” and they did and nobody watched them?

    • Mikey

      Conversely, they did the same thing for Family Guy and that show is going to be renewed forever

      • The difference, I think, was that Family Guy dropped any and all pretense of the characters being remotely decent people and just let them run wild as assholes and Futurama tried a bit too much to make the characters sympathetic when they rebooted.

    • It ran four more seasons … so *somebody* was watching them.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        They made four more seasons!? Holy shit. Wait… But they are weird Comedy Central seasons where episodes roll out like, four at a time and then they stop airing new ones until the “winter premiere”

        • I can’t answer that. I know they ran 13 episodes a season at the end but in Canada they always aired once a week for 13 consecutive weeks (and about two months later than the American debut).

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It might have been. It just seemed like a blink and you missed it return. Like the return of Beavis and Butt-Head.

          • Or the abortion that was the Ren and Stimpy reboot.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Jeeeeezus! The Adult Cartoon Party. Did you know that apparently a lot of those were made from rejected scripts he wrote for Nickelodeon?

          • I can see why they were rejected, that’s for damn sure.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Totally.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    That was awesome! Onto ep 2!

    • Mikey

      I think you’ll like this one better

  • Starscreamlive

    Evening, BoD.
    So I finally watched the Nintendo Switch promo and game promos. I have to say, I might be picking one up. Mario Odyssey looks pretty good too. WiiU was the only Nintendo console I never bought. I think Nintendo is on to something with the Switch.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      My friend has been banging the “Switch has no games” drum all day today, even though we’re getting Zelda, Mario Kart, Splatoon, Xenoblade, and Mario in the first calendar year alone. Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey trailers looked AWESOME

      • Starscreamlive

        Skyrim and FIFA too supposedly.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Yeah. Sure, people have played Skyrim already, but you couldnt play it on the shitter in a plane!

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        So all first party games. And still no Metroid or F-Zero.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          They look D-E-A-D. Don’t know why.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            F-Zero was never a big seller. I guess people that like racing games want games that have real cars and real tracks and buy either Forza or Gran Tourismo.

            Metroid, I dunno. The Prime games all sold well, but Other M was bad enough I can see why it killed the franchise.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Metroid is a must. F-Zero on the GameCube was great! I miss that one!

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            F-Zero GX and Metroid Prime 1&2 are reasons enough to own a GC. The only reasons, really.

          • Starscreamlive

            Oddly enough, F-Zero on the GameCube was actually designed by Sega.

      • WE WANT KIRBY! *clap, clap, clap-clap-clap* WE WANT KIRBY!

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Come to think of it the WiiU is the only Nintendo console I’ve never owned.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        DItto

      • Starscreamlive

        You’re a Nintendo fanboy and didn’t even know it. 🙂

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Not anymore. Only ones I currently own are a NES and a Wii. The NES is basically a collector’s item and is stored in safe keeping with my NEO-GEO CD at my mom’s house, I only keep the Wii because my niece watches Netflix on it when she comes over (and there’s so many Wiis out there that they’re practically worthless), I don’t even own any games for it.

          Wish I still had my Gamecube though.

          • Starscreamlive

            If you have a Wii, then you don’t need a GameCube anymore. Just pick up a couple GameCube controllers and a few games and you’re good to go.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            True. But I had all the good games, and GC controllers are surprisingly expensive.

            I din’t even sell the thing, I gave it away…

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Dee Reynolds looks pretty good in bikini bottoms, for an ostrich.

    • Curtis Williams

      Kaitlin Olson has the ability to make herself look hot as shit and then absolute mess the next.

      Quite a skill.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      This is truth.

    • Mikey

      She looked good

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      She’s one of those chicks where I can’t decide if she’s hot or not.

    I’m enjoying the Space Ghost reruns on Adult Swim

  • Aaron

    Guilty pleasure “match” – Craig “Pit Bull” Pittman vs. Cobra.

    • Dwayne

      The squash at Fall brawl 95?

      • Aaron

        Yeah. The whole setup was hilarious.

        • Dwayne

          I didn’t get it at the time. But I was like they killed that guy. He sucked anyway

    • HartKiller_09

      Oddly enough, my first impression of Cobra was he was like a Sting ripoff.

      • Dwayne

        I liked when Sting beat him up in 96

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    I wanted to hate this…but I don’t.

    “We’re Church Blacks!” *high-five*

  • Mikey

    LeBron’s first game was in Sacramento. I remember the next day in high school that was all the talk. I don’t think anyone figured that LeBron would be so good so fast.

    • Dwayne

      I was a Carmelo fan then. I saw him win at Syracuse. I didn’t see Lebron. Carmelo made the playoffs. Wade too. Lebron had the worst team

      • Mikey

        That was a really bad team. LeBron, Z, Boozer, and garbage.

        • Dwayne

          The team he took to the finals in 07 sucked

          • Mikey

            Yep. Maybe the worst team to make it to the finals. Sasha Pavlovic was a starter lol

          • Dwayne

            Lol. I did like Larry Hughes

          • Mikey

            He was a good player that had a one off year with DC and got paid like a star. He basically went to being the actual player that he was and got shit on it. Danny Ferry overreacted when Michael Redd decided to stay with the Bucks. That was stupid on Redd’s part as well.

          • Aaron

            He was huge around here.

          • Mikey

            He played Kelly Rowland’s boyfriend in the video for the song that she did with Nelly.

          • Aaron

            He was pretty good. He still gets more recognition than Bradley Beal, even though Beal is having a good career.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I can’t even remember another player on that team.

      • Bruce Chung

        I figured LeBron would be really good, but not this good. I was thinking Melo could be a great scorer, and he has been. Just the way the NBA has evolved that scoring isn’t as important as overall game or creating shots for your teammates.

    • Comdukakis

      I saw a couple games of his on ESPN when he was in high school. Amazing court vision. I knew he would be amazing even then. He reminded me then of Magic, but he elevated his offensive game well beyond Magic by becoming a better shooter.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Damn…It smells like I just unleashed a skunk in my room.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      See, this is what I’m talking about.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I am just as open about my drug use in the day time…It just gets buried under talk about Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens or Japan or whatever wrestler you kids all love that week.

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          As Mister_E_Mahn said, I assumed you were talking about a fart. My mistake.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Nah, I don’t get weed farts. Plus I don’t tout my farts like that usually.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            Oh, you’d be surprised. Some folks here can’t wait to share their bodily functions with the rest of us.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh, I know, I am one of them. Just not with farts.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I just ran out of weed.

          • When I was 22 I made a rule: never, ever run out of weed.

            And I never, ever have.

          • Dwayne

            Is it legal in Toronto?

          • No but stores selling it are widespread.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Not the sense of how it’s legal in Colorado or Washington. More like Amsterdam, technically illegal but cops and such just ignore it.

          • It’s not really as open as Amsterdam. But it’s becoming moreso.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Amsterdam has actually been cracking down on it lately.

          • Only in the sense of reducing the number of shops. They still operate very openly the ones that are still there.

            We’ve got that here, sort of, but it’s not as open, and the risk of getting busted is higher. The cops occasionally bust places selling it to make a point.

            You’d basically never get busted just smoking a joint though unless maybe you were hanging around a playground during school hours or something retarded.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            They don’t give a shit really. If you’re getting arrested for something else and have weed you’ll be charged with it (though at that point the $100 fine is probably the least of your problems) and yeah, if you’re just going to be an asshole about it the cops will treat you like an asshole. But I’ve been ccaught with weed by the cops on numerous occasions and have never been charged, sometimes they confiscate it, but usually they don’t even do that.

            Note that this only applies to upstate NY, once you get to NYC it’s a totally different ballgame.

          • I made a slight effort to find some in Cleveland with no luck, and otherwise I’ve never bothered on your side. If I got busted I’d probably be barred from reentry and then I could lose my job or at the very least have some difficult questions to answer since I occasionally travel to the US for work.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Here it’s only like a traffic ticket, not even a misdemeanor. But yeah, in your case no reason to risk it.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Weed was legal in India till the 80s when the US government pressured us to outlaw it.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’ve heard it’s still really easy to get there though.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Sure. I never bothered with it though.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            You should try it sometime. A hell of a lot better for you than alcohol.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’ve had short checks the last couple weeks because of the holidays.

            I did at least have a little left for when I got home. And I got plenty of beer.

          • Starscreamlive

            I ran out almost 11 yrs ago. Never got anymore after that.

          • Mikey

            Quit smoking weed regularly after college. I don’t miss it. I’m surprised that I don’t.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I can go without it if I have to, and even when I have it I don’t smoke much. This was a $50 bag, and I bought it the Friday before Christmas.

    Last night, I bitched about the Nintendo Switch presentation.

    This morning I pre-ordered one.

    Now, I’m mad that I have to wait 2 more months for Zelda.

    Nintendo wins again.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Hot fire out of the gate by Always Sunny. I’d probably go with the premiere over the water park, but both were aces, which is pretty good considering in its later seasons, it’s usually good ep-bad ep-good ep-bad ep.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    Frank not understanding why he can’t say the n-word is funny because it’s all-too-real.

  • Mikey

    Damn, Cavs might blow this game. Not against the damn Kings, please.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    Water parks are so disgusting.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      This is a terrible opinion.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        It’s people soup. Horrible, diseased people soup.

      Cedar Point has one attached to it that I’ve been to a few times and I should have just remained at Cedar Point.

        The one at Darien Lake is fucking awesome.

    • Matt Johnson

      The water park episode of Always Sunny was amazing.

  • greaterpower99

    I watched The Phantom Menace last night for the first time in quite a while. The hate for it is seriously overblown, in fact I’d go so far as to say it’s actually pretty good.

    • Comdukakis

      too confusing. much preferred then 2nd and 3rd prequels

      • greaterpower99

        I’d put it above Episode II.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X
    • Bruce Chung

      It’s perfectly fine as a movie. The 2 major issues was expectations, and it kind of was unnecessary to the overall Saga.

      • greaterpower99

        I’m not sure that any movie could have lived up to that level of expectation.

    • Starscreamlive

      Depends on what my mood is. Sometimes it’s terrible, sometimes it’s ok.

    • Aaron

      Best movie ever made about a trade embargo.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      With the Darth Jar Jar theory, it’s freaking awesome!

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      The action is fine, but the dialogue, flattened performances and snoozetastic plot is a tough sit, and instead of making Anakin an interesting origin, they just turned into in a stupid little moppet. THAT’s the kid who goes on to be the most feared figure in the galaxy??

      • greaterpower99

        It is what it is. No point in wishing otherwise.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ow ow ow ow owie owie owie! Weed in my paper cut! Weed in my paper cut!!!!

    • Comdukakis

      just say no and that wouldn’t happen

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I would just get something else in my cuts.

        Just say no to paper cuts.

  • So I’m finally getting around to watching Omega/Okada match. AXS has the match on now (watching the midnight replay cause I had impromptu dinner plans).

    • Mikey

      I really loved the match

      • I’m loving the pacing thus far.

    • Aaron

      JR and Barnett did a good call.

    • maskedcabana

      Awesome match, but a few little things that keep it from being GOAT.

      • Okay good it’s not just me.

  • Comdukakis

    With all the folks who smoke weed around here sometimes I wonder if they would be interesting without it or they would find me interesting without it. Ya’ll of course will never know whether I’m more or less interesting on weed.

    • Yeehaw

      No one is ever more interesting on weed.

      • Comdukakis

        that’s my take but then again I’m a pretty anti-drug guy.

        • Yeehaw

          I am too but there are plenty of interesting people on other things.

          • Comdukakis

            drugs aren’t and have never been a thing in my circles. So any experience I have is with employees or coworkers who I despise(d) when high or on message boards like this

          • Yeehaw

            I’ve dealt with a couple of things, nothing too hardcore, but I haven’t in years. I have quite a few friends that dabble in different things as well. A pure stoner is the least interesting person in my book.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Awww man, I hope I ain’t despised. Frown upon, sure. That’s fine. But not despised…

          • Comdukakis

            No I meant I despised people at work on weed, not people on here. Whole different dynamic chatting with folks here than relying on people smoking pot to show up for work and do their jobs properly

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I just show up stoned out of circumstance. Work just happens to be during my high time. But it’s towards the end of high time so it’s not like…a deal.

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          what kind of liberal are you?!

          • Comdukakis

            the kind that finds people who are drunk or high pretty annoying in my experience.

          • Aaron

            There are plenty of this variety.

          • Comdukakis

            exactly. I’m for legal pot because overall I think it’s harmless even if my experience is pot smokers annoy me. Just because I’m liberal doesn’t mean I wish to foul my body

          • Aaron

            I don’t get high a lot because I prefer to drink. I don’t care if others get high.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Sometimes I wonder if you, Rudo, and me are the only ones who don’t smoke…

      • Mikey

        Just cigarettes here.

      • Starscreamlive

        I quit 11 yrs ago. Gave up cigarettes two years ago. I still drink though.

        • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

          I gave em up at Y2K. Other than a couple of puffs four days later, I’ve had nothing since.

      • Comdukakis

        seems like it. then again it wasn’t until medical marijuana became a thing in Michigan that I realized how prevalent it is. While I support legal pot, the critics were 100% right that medical marijuna laws as written in the proposal before the voters was absolutely a backdoor way to basically legalize weed. I’m I amazed at how many grow shops are advertising on the radio. And they must do well for how many there are and how much they advertise.

      • Aaron

        I’ll have a few hits a few times a year. I never got heavily into it.

      • I think there’s many more than that.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        🙁

        • Comdukakis

          look, you smoke pot and you aren’t black. Now stop this nonsense

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            If I’m white, someone’s got some ‘splaining to do.

          • Comdukakis

            my mind only has room for 3 black people on this boards: Dwayne, Devin Harris, and Night. So which one do I kick back to Asian, Hispanic or White to make room for you?

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            Well, just think of me as an Orkan, then.

            Nanoo nanoo!

          • Comdukakis

            I loved that show. It burned bright and flamed out quickly so there was no slow descent into crap like Roseanne or other shows.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I could swing it. With or without the pot, my crazy still exists. I would be interesting enough.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Yeah, I’m pretty much the same weed or not. Though Saturday at work I was stoned out of my fucking mind and everyone could tell, probably because my eyes looked like brake lights.

        It’s about when I crack the second 40 that you see a change in my personality.

    • Mikey

      It just always got me feeling slow and got me paranoid. I enjoy booze and I do not think I can ever quit cigs, but weed was just something I ever really needed

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I consider myself a medical smoker. I’ve been prescribed various benzos (Xanax, Kolonapin, etc…) and those either have no effect or the side effects are so bad I wish they had no effect. Plus people get feint out on that shit. I’ll just take the weed, it’s also the only thing that helps my back spasms.

        • chicagodem79

          If I had serious chronic pain, I definitely would rather use medical marijuana of some sort rather than take those frightening pain pills.

    • For many years now I really only do it before bed just to relax. But that is every day.

    • Dwayne

      You wouldn’t know the difference with me. I’m the same

      • Yeah that’s pretty much me too.

        • Dwayne

          When you’re used to it, it’s just a nice buzz. It’s not like being drunk

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I was just about to say likewise but then I realized that kinda scares the hell out of me.

    • chicagodem79

      Never have smoked anything in my life….a combo of D.A.R.E., Vacation Bible School, and my mom and dad saying they would whoop my damn ass if they ever caught me kept me from starting, and as an adult, I’ve just never had a desire to.

      • Comdukakis

        it just was never a thing for me or my friends growing up. Granted I grew up in the just say no 80s and in an upper middle class school where only the “scary” kids did drugs (not that some of the “cool” kids didn’t drink). People who smoked pot or worse were whispered about. And as I got out of high school and into college (the first time) and into adult hood it just didn’t seem like something I was interested in being a part of.

        • I went to a middle class suburban school but it’s just a pretty common thing here to at least try it for a while even if you don’t stick with it.

          • Even to this day working in a professional white collar office with mostly all people over 30 there are a lot of people who dabble a bit.

          • Comdukakis

            but when did you go? I graduated in 91, so my years were on the heels of Nancy Reagan and the entire just say no movement. Rappers weren’t’ touting pot all the time in videos.

          • Oh yeah I was in the mid 90s.

          • Comdukakis

            and I can’t state enough for you guys how white, upper class, and conservative my school was. We had a mock election in 88 and Dukakis got BURIED because 80% of the parents were voting Bush. Kids got either volvos or CRXs on their 16th birthday. The most popular kids in school were also in the honors programs and got good grades.

        • chicagodem79

          Pot was HUGE at my high school. The locker room reeked of it all the time lol. But it was nothing that was ever in my circle of friends that closely (I did know people that tried it and used), and I was offered, but it was just something I never wanted to get into.

        • Dwayne

          I grew up in the hood and it was something people did. Not everyone but it wasn’t looked down on like crack or heroin

      • Dwayne

        I started when I got older. I drank in high school a few times but weed I tried around 18. I was seeing an older girl and she was a pothead. I tried it and liked it a lot. Still do to this day

        • RudoWakening

          I smoked from age 16-21 when I got diagnosed with acid reflux. It just felt AWFUL after that.

    • RudoWakening

      I have never hated weed as much as I did this morning. I had to explain to a guy that was WAY TOO FUCKING HIGH for 0830 what my spectrometer does in regards to colour matching FOUR FUCKING TIMES in under five minutes. I mixed 6 total gallons (all an off-white colour that was 10 shots of black per gallon), and he opened each one and made a big goddamn mess on my counter. I hope he drove off of a cliff.

  • johntcole

    Honestly, Brock by every right should win he Rumble this year. If they want to rebuild his credibility him murdering a bunch of people and winning the Rumble could work.

    Maybe Brock vs Roman vs Goldberg at Mania? Roman can bring it in big match situations and Lesnar (while motivated) can bring it as well.

    • Yeehaw

      Or.. they could just give the credibility to a guy that works all year. Crazy take..

      • johntcole

        Sure, and Brock going on a tear but not winning could work as well. But I think him vs Roman still has life to it.

        • Yeehaw

          I really have no interest in ever seeing Lesnar wrestle so I guess my opinion on it is a bit checkered. I wasn’t a fan of the SS squash.

    • Comdukakis

      couldn’t hurt. Then have Lesnar say he doesn’t want the title shot, he wants Goldberg. Then you can book whoever you want to face off for the belts at WM and still have Goldberg/Lesnar

    • Mikey

      I’m so over Brock. It really hit me the night after 31 when he F5d Cole and the cameraman. It was really awesome but then I realized “ah, he won’t be back for several months”.

      Fuck the part timers.

      • johntcole

        In fairness Brock is working a ton of dates this year so far.

        • Mikey

          Still it’s every few months. I’m just not down with that anymore. Eventually, those guys are going to get too old. I think Cena is going to be a part time draw but after that?

          • johntcole

            I do think a full timer wins thus year honestly, even if it’s someone we don’t like.

      • Starscreamlive

        I wish more were part timers. I get tired of seeing the same people wrestle the same opponent week in and week out.
        Stretch out appearances and make when they show up a special occasion.

        • johntcole

          This is a good argument I think that doesn’t get brought up enough.

        • Aaron

          They could at least rotate out who wrestles. There are plenty of guys on the roster who never make TV.

        • Comdukakis

          I disagree. with part timers I want them to be like Cena in that they show up for 2 months and work every week to really put over a program.

          • Starscreamlive

            That is also fine with me. As long as it’s not every week, 52 weeks a year. The way Cena and Jericho are scheduled works well for me.

          • Comdukakis

            now that I think about it, maybe a happy medium. One of my pet peeves about Raw is how sick I am of KO/Jericho interacting with Reigns and Rollins before they even work the ppv. So maybe part timers who show up every other week or every third week for a 3 month period leading to one of the big 4 ppvs.

    • greaterpower99

      The trouble with that scenario is that Brock never seems to be motivated these days.

  • Starscreamlive

    Maybe tomorrow Marv’s new gimmick will be Marvijuana.

    • Comdukakis

      that would be a good one.

    • chicagodem79

      I’m waiting for Marv Albert lol

        Ugh, she couldnt even back the right person at WM2000

        • I pick…..Headbanger Thrasher.

  • Mikey

    I’ve never had the urge to quit smoking cigarettes because I’m still in shape and I can still run long distances and not get winded. I’ve told myself I’ll quit smoking when I can’t run anymore and that still hasn’t happened after over a decade of smoking a pack a day

    • how much does a pack of cigs cost? Last time I saw someone buying cigarettes they spent like $7 and I can’t imagine setting that much money on fire every day.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        About $10 here.

      • Mikey

        My camel menthols are about $6 a pack

        • 6*365 = $1095.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Then add in a lighter for $2 every 2 weeks or so.

          • Mikey

            That is a lot. I’m more like 15 cigs a day at this point, so it’s a little less than that. I’m very conservative with my income so it doesn’t really hurt me.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’ve switched to cigarillos. $1 for 5 of them and they last as long as a pack of Newports will.

          • I was gonna ask how many cigs are in a pack? I’m not trying to be judgy or anything, I was eating fast food 3-4 times a week and just did the math on that and HOLY FUCK am I glad I stopped doing that.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            20.

          • Mikey

            20 squares

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            You call them squares too? I thought that was a local thing.

      • chicagodem79

        Yeah cigarettes seem like a VERY expensive habit, I could only imagine the money people save when they quit….as long as they don’t go crazy as a result lol.

      • Pretty sure they’re like $12 here.

    • Dwayne

      I smoked cigs in my early 20s. When NYC raised the price to like $10 bucks I realized I didn’t like them that much

    • Other than literally once or twice to shut someone up when I was younger I’ve never smoked cigarettes. Just never had the urge.

    • greaterpower99

      I’ve literally smoked a cigarette once in my life , in the sixth form (I don’t know what the American equivalent to that is, i was 16 if it helps). It did nothing whatsoever for me and I’ve never been tempted to take up the habit.

  • JR and Barnett on commentary are great.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    The potheads at my high school looked like Walking Dead zombies. There was one dude who literally looked as though he’d been dead for two years and no one told him. Scared me right off.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I din’t start smoking weed regularly until I was almost 19.

  • The Professor

    I’ve never done any illegal drugs nor smoked a cigarette

    • Dwayne

      Give me your lunch money

    • Comdukakis

      I’ve smoke a cigarette or two in my time, even cloves, but never even tried pot. And I went to Humboldt University for a year!!! Rudo nows what I’m talking about

      • Dwayne

        When I was in college in NYC drugs were cool. I went to parties with people doing E in the late 90s. I did coke parties, it’s crazy I survived all that. Now it’s weed only.

      • RudoWakening

        Dude, since the recreational use bill passed, it’s nuts. I work in ACE Hardware right now and it smells like a fucking grow house half of the time.

        • Comdukakis

          yuck. I can’t believe I didn’t mention that. I FUCKING HATE the smell of pot too.

          • RudoWakening

            The guy I mentioned a bit ago when discussing the paint spectrometer was SOOOOOOO BAD. He leaned over the counter to ask me something and I had to back away.

    • Me neither. Alcohol, absolutely. I don’t touch the rest.

  • Okada’s nasty reverse neckbreaker was awesome, but that was a fake-looking convoluted sequence to get into it.

    I’m not sure how Metlzer gets ******.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      “but that was a fake-looking convoluted sequence to get into it.”

      All wrestling looks like that if you even remotely even know what a real fight looks like

  • Yeehaw

    I like how it’s cool now how the media have just NOW accepted Mel Gibson back into their sick world. The guy made amends years ago and now he made a very good film that fits their progressive agenda, let’s treat him like a great guy again!

    • Comdukakis

      isn’t america the land of 2nd chances though?

      • Yeehaw

        It wasn’t for him for a long time.

        • Comdukakis

          I realize that but I’ve always had issues with how we punish people in this country. Taking away the right to vote in some states for people who have served time is wrong on every level. And for sex offenders, if you can’t trust them to live in 95% of the places, then don’t release them. Either you trust them, or you don’t. I’m just the type of person who doesn’t believe that a person is the sum of one wrong act, whether it’s domestic violenced, drunk driving, a racial slur, etc.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            The “second chance” thing is so overblown. Many, many people in this country never get one, and honestly there are some who shouldn’t. Mostly though, it’s the ones with some extraordinary skill or ability that can make someone $$$$ that truly get that chance. Pretty much everyone else is screwed.

      • HartKiller_09

        I think this is his 3rd. The Jew hating was forgiven until the tapes where he threatened to kill his wife.

        • Comdukakis

          not familiar with the latter

        • greaterpower99

          Former girlfriend, not wife. And I’m not aware if any instances where he threatened to kill her. Care to elaborate?

          • HartKiller_09

            The tapes that she leaked in 2010, I don’t know if he specifically says “I’m going to kill you” but there was something about burning the house down and a lot of racial comments.

    • greaterpower99

      Mel Gibson the person may be an asshole, but Mel Gibson the actor/director has made some fantastic movies over the years.

  • I smoked a cigarette when I was a resident assistant on a dare. Later that night the smoke detectors in my building went off and I took that as a sign from god never to smoke again. And I never did.

    Well I did one other time but I was drunk.

  • Also Flair and Steamboat didn’t need furntiure to hit *****.

    • RudoWakening

      Is this in regards to Okada/Omega? If so, it was ***** with or without the table spot.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Yeah. It was in Omega’s MO to try that so he did, but no one spot makes or unmarkes that match *****

  • chicagodem79

    My mom and dad both used to smoke. One day, my sister and I threw out both their cigarettes. They got SO mad, and spanked us and grounded us….but then they both stopped smoking shortly thereafter, so it worked!

      Twist: You were 25 and 22 at the time.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    I don’t mean to have this sound racist (so of course I’m gonna say something racist) but you ever have a black person ask you for a smoke, and pull out a pack of Marb Reds or some other not menthol cig and they say “Oh, never mind”? This has happened to me countless times.

    • Comdukakis

      menthols are very popular with blacks. Newport was the brand of choice when I worked at a small grocery store in Eureka

      • Dwayne

        If I saw a white girl smoking menthols I knew I could probably get with her lol

        • RudoWakening

          Most of the chicks I’ve known that smoke either smoke menthols or Marb Lights.

            We call those bitch sticks.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Most white people I know prefer menthol, including me. Newport has the market share on smokes here like how Nintendo runs the market on portable game systems.

        But I’ve never seen a black person buy a pack of non-menthols. Maybe it’s Salems or Kools, but always menthol.

        • RudoWakening

          I worked with an old rugged black dude that smoked Winstons. He was awesome.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Sounds like it. Old black guys got some stories to tell.

    • Dwayne

      I don’t know about all that. If I ask for a cig I’m just trying to enhance my buzz. I don’t care what brand it is. Fuck menthols. I did buy newports when I bought packs though

      • Mikey

        Newport 100s got too rough for me. Went from Newport 100s to Camel Smooths to Camel Crush to Camel Menthols. Have been on my current smoke for five years or so

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I like Camel Wide Menthols.

    • RudoWakening

      It’s happened a couple of times back when I used to drink. The black dudes that were on the asbestos crew when I worked in Wisconsin didn’t give a fuck– they just wanted a smoke.

      Also, 90% of the time I’ve bummed smokes from a black dude he’s said “It’s menthol. That cool?”

    • Mikey

      I smoke menthols so I don’t have this problem when I’m smoking at work

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        At my job I have to constantly bitch at people. There’s a can for cig butts RIGHT THERE, don’t toss them on the ground.

      When you start a sentence with “I don’t mean to sound racist” that statement is going to be racist as hell.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Yes, hence the “so of course I’m gonna say something racist” that immediately followed.

  • Mikey

    I was going to go to my local watering hole but no point now when they’re going to start doing last call in an hour. Tomorrow I suppose

  • Comdukakis

    anyone watching the UK tourney tomorrow?

    • RudoWakening

      Not live, as I work 1000-1800

      • Comdukakis

        wife and daughter want to watch it.

  • RudoWakening

    Just saw the super dragon suplex again. Was it awesome? Of course. Was it fucking insane and is Okada lucky to not be hurt? Yes. And it should’ve ended the fucking match.

    • Mikey

      Agreed.That is one complaint I have with the match. Reminded me of a Tanaka-Awesome match

    • chicagodem79

      That’s my problem with the match, an insane spot like that SHOULD be the ending.

      • maskedcabana

        Worse yet, 2 minutes later he’s up and running like it never happened.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      Top rope moves not ending matches is such a thing that I can’t even be upset by them anymore.

      I also think Okada was never meant to take it like that and it looked more match ending than it should have.

    • TOP ROPE DRAGON SUPLEX! Please tell me it finished, at least.

      Jesus Christ, Japan.

  • Dwayne

    I wonder about people that are always sober. Like I don’t need to be high all the time, but I like stimulants

    • Comdukakis

      I’m high on life. I grew up on after school specials, just say no, NBC celebs teaching me through PSAs

    • RudoWakening

      Nothin’ wrong with Kenny or myself!

    • chicagodem79

      Eh, addiction runs in my family, so I’m really cognizant of it.

      • Comdukakis

        that too. On my mom’s side my real grandfather was an alcoholic his whole life. I met him once when I was too young to remember. Otherwise my grandpa was my step grandpa. And my uncle got busted for drunk driving like six times and did prison time. My dad is addicted to pain killers for his back. So I stay away from that shit

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Addiction doesn’t run in my family.

        It warp-speeds from person to person.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Mine too. Which is why while I’m a pothead and a bit of a lush I never even tried coke or heroin or pills (unless properly prescribed) or any shit like that.

        • Dwayne

          Heroin sounds like the worst thing. I grew up around crack and I never wanted any part of it. I don’t like pills either. I tried a couple things but never got hooked on it. Coke I experimented with but I was annoyed that the high didn’t last long enough lol.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            My brother is an ex-heroin addict (will be 5 years clean next month) and yeah, it’s awful. And he quit cold turkey and the withdrawl is the worst shit I’ve ever seen, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

    • Bruce Chung

      Drugs don’t work on me very quickly. Weed and coke doesn’t seem to work without massive quantities.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I couldn’t even imagine it. I’d never sleep and would go batshit crazy.

    • razor172

      I hate coke and aderall. If I want to get high I just want to chill out not get wired

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    I wonder if I would enjoy living in England?

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I wouldn’t like it. Food sucks and football/hockey games start at weird hours.

      • RudoWakening

        On the fine dining end, British food has been making huge strides over the last 5-10 years

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Do you at least have good ethnic places?

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            London and Manchester both have excellent Indian restaurants.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I don’t really like Indian food. I can see why you’d be biased towards it though.

          • RudoWakening

            Shit dude, I live in California. I’m going by what I’ve read and watched on tv.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Oh. I’m thinking of a place like Toronto. You want Chinese/Thai/Greek/Indian/Italian/whatever, you’re good. You just want like, basic diner food, something you’d get at Denny’s? You’re fucked.

          • We have diners.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            And they suck. Stick to hockey and beer, leave the cooking and whiskey to us pros.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Lots of pubs with great food in Toronto. That covers our plain food.

    • Do you like rain and meat pies?

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Rain, I don’t mind. No to the meat pies.

    • Dwayne

      Depends on what you are looking for

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Just a nice, clean quiet place. Although to be fair, that might not be England for long with this Brexit thing. I guess if I stuck to London I’d be fine, but I’m guessing much like New York/Chicago/LA/etc. it’s insanely expensive to live there.

        I’ve also hear disturbing things about the toilet situation. Low-flow? No go.

        • Dude, you want Canada. We’re very clean and quiet.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            I thought you guys didn’t want us ‘Muricans.

          • Americans are usually ok individually. It’s just when you get a bunch of them together.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Any toilet that needs more than two flushes is just a cruel prank.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Damn. It’s still all drug talk city up in hurr.

  • To piggyback on the smokers’ discussion below, in college, I used to get bummed off of ALL THE FUCKING TIME, so I made it a personal quest to try and find cigarettes so nasty nobody would even bother me for one anymore.

    As it turns out, broke college students are not deterred by Parliaments, Newports, Unfiltered Basics, Lucky Strikes, Pall Malls, Kools, Camel Screwdrivers, Marlboro Reds, Camel Turkish Silvers, Benson & Hedges, or fucking Bugler rollies. THEY WILL SMOKE WHATEVER YOU HAVE.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      A lot of people bumbing aren’t regular smokers.

      They wouldn’t even know quality

      • I once watched a dude roll up pipe tobacco in construction paper and smoke it.

        PEOPLE IN FUCKING PRISON AREN’T THAT HARD UP FOR A NIC FIX.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          He couldn’t scrape up a buck for a Black n’ Mild?

          • IIRC, he was 18 (the legal age to get smokes is 19 here for some ass-backwards reason), so even if he’d had the buck, he’d have to get somebody else to go get it for him.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            One time some wino asked me for a buck so he could buy a 40.

            I gave it to him. I’ve been there before, and I appreciated his honesty.

        • People will pick cigarette butts up off the ground outside of the subway and relight them.

    • redman

      A friend of mine stole a carton of cigs from Walmart a long time ago and he came out to where we were all hanging out at and said he got us all cigs. We were so excited till we saw he stole marathons. FUCKING MARATHONS I’d never even heard of them and they were the worst cigarette I’d ever smoked

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    I had a great exchange with my doctor about weed at my last appointment.

    Doc: Do you smoke Glenn?

    Me: …you mean like cigarettes?

    Doc: I guess that answers my question.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I doubt he was asking about weed.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        I’m pretty sure he was asking about both.

        I’m on medication that does brain chemical stuff.

        He’s cool though. When my dad asked for medical because his knee is fucked up he said he didn’t have grounds to prescribe it for this case…but if it helps, just go buy it.

    • I’ve always been honest about that.

      “just weed”

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I don’t know how it works up there, but here you can tell your doctor just about anything and it’s protected under doctor/patient confidentiality laws. I mean, tell him you’re going home to kill your wife and he’s gotta call the cops, but anything you did before that, it’s like talking to a priest, he can’t testify against you even if he wants to.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Same way. Only way to ensure you’re honest with your doctor.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I think it’s funny that my doctor encourages me to drink.

          • I’m aware of this law/rule, but I still fudge things on the rare occasion I see a doctor. Not that he’ll tell anyone, but I can feel their eyes saying “welp, guess you made shitty life choices, you fat lazy fuck”.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            “Well, I’m not the one in debt to about $250k in student loans, dickhead”.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Most doctors are passed that part by the time they have they’re own practice.

          • “Mr. Dave, your blood pressure is extremely high right now, do you have stress?”

            “Yeah, I’m stressed, because for all I know, you’re gonna tell me I have super-cancer. People don’t go to the doctor because shit’s going great.”

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            That’s like how when I was a kid a lot of guys wanted to be a gynecologist. Um, girls don’t have some random guy poking around down there because everything is a-okay.

        • It’s the same.

      It isn’t.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      He rotates them first. That doesn’t matter.

      it’s over as fuck, and that does.

      I’d buy that knocking someone out.

      • I’m not knocking it one bit, I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Lol, I’m just too used to people knocking it by pointing out its a short arm clothesline.

          It is a simple move.

      • Mikey

        In my above post about the super kick, it’s basically the heat of the match. And you should buy it as finisher

    • rxchrisg

      You’re spinning them and pulling them in. Not hugely different but the audience is trained to buy it.

    ” Old-time promoters tried to legitimize the sport, and I came along, and my point of view was one of, ‘Wait a minute. This is entertainment, and our audience knows it’s entertainment.’ The only people that are **** themselves are the owners of the territories, thinking we’re presenting this as a sport. I looked at it in terms of entertainment.”

  • Mikey

    I’m surprised that they allow super kicks as a nothing move in WWE. It’s embarrassing that the Usos joke tag team use that as a nothing move when the best pro wrestler of all time used that as a finisher.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      Uso super kicks don’t even look good or get a pop.

      The young bucks might spam them, but they don’t use them as meaningless.

      • Mikey

        They still make them seem lame tbh. I get it that it’s their gimmick. But Shawn had more talent than both of them combined and they made a mockery of it at the ppv when Cole joined bullet club.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          It’s just a kick.

          If you’ve never seen Shawn Michaels work it wouldn’t even register. It’s not a top rope piledriver or anything inherently dangerous looking.

          Michaels was my childhood fav and I think it’s silly to protect a move because a guy retired for 7 years used it.

          • Mikey

            Did you see the anger here when Cena used the springboard stunner in 2015?

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Yeah, and for the most part those people were stupid.

            I also had a poem with the move, which is that Cena had garbage execution of it.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Those people were fine, but the RAGE over him using his stunner, eh.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “How did you grow your audience?

    It was the lowest common denominator in terms of who those promoters were trying to appeal to. It goes all the way back to make sure your big events happen on the 15th and beginning of every month because that’s when the ‘welfare’ checks came out. So that was their point of view. I’m going, that is really stupid. Why not appeal to a much broader spectrum across American and increase the potential of the audience, so that’s why I went more in terms of the entertainment sectors.”

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    The other night I was watching videos of this chick doing a cam show and she had her background music set to shuffle. Towards the end of a video I heard a car crash and thought “Oh….Oh god, no” and sure enough it was Mankind’s theme. I just quit the whole operation and went to bed.

    Ryback apparently is angry at Cena? Sorry but the guy sucked in the ring and they gave him chances and he was dangerous. There were more people upset that Cena didn’t allow a broken down Mark Henry win the belt from Cena than there were Ryback

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      And Alex Reilly was never nothing more than a jobber.

      I don’t doubt for a second that Cena hasn’t played Kevin Nash level politics, But come on now.

    • Ryback has way overinflated his own worth. He went a lot farther than I thought he would, but the only way he’d ever be a top guy is if there was a Miami Sound Machine bus crash with all the other top guys in it.
